Alexis Sanchez has admitted he is filled with pride in becoming the highest-paid footballer in the history of the Premier League .

Sanchez, the Chile star, left Arsenal for Manchester United during the January transfer window in a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way in exchange .

Sanchez penned a four-and-a-half year contract with the Old Trafford club, and his basic wage is reported to be around £350,000-a-week - this is £60,000-a-week higher than United’s previous highest wage, paid to Paul Pogba.

With his image rights and bonuses included, the 29-year-old Sanchez could earn up to an eye-watering £600,000 on a weekly basis.

For Sanchez, his hefty wage is a source of pride.

“The more pressure I’m under, the better I feel,” the forward said.

“I feel like an important player at world level. “Being the best-paid in the Premier League fills me with pride at being Chilean.”

Sanchez has not caught the world alight since joining Man United, with a series of questionable performances leading to calls for him to be dropped from Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up .
